Making Natural History: a Virtual Festival for the Environment

Posted on 9/11/2020

In 1995 Eastbourne created and hosted a remarkable event: “Leave It To Us”, the first United Nations international children’s conference on the environment. Over 800 children from 92 countries challenged world leaders to stop the destruction of natural habitats and reduce the use of non-recyclable plastic.⁠

Twenty-five years on Making Natural History revisits the vision of these young activists and gives us the encouragement and the tools to build on their legacy.⁠

This online festival programme showcases shining examples of environmental activism, conservation and education; it includes a series of family-friendly virtual presentations, discussions and masterclasses.⁠

Towner will be giving its own presentation at 5.00pm on Tuesday 17 November, discussing how we use our exhibitions and Collection to deepen the appreciation of the amazing natural resources on our doorstep and further afield.⁠

Wherever you are in the UK, Making Natural History will give you an understanding of ways in which you, yourself, in your patch, can make things better.
